I have pics of my car on a bunch of different threads here on this forum. I'm just gonna make a lil photo gallery of my own. I can't seem to stop playing around with the way my car looks.

Started with rims and personalized plate. The tC belongs to my daughter. We've done so much stuff to her car too.


Calipers painted.


LEDs!!!!





FooFoo girlie style sakura print accents.





Painted some engine pieces.


Upgraded the suspension to Hotchkis sway bar set and dropped the car on NF210's.



Exterior LED's and HID's.




Added a TRD center exhaust made for the RS 7.0 Murasaki.



Was tired of the OEM silver in the interior so I sprayed some dash pieces in a Toyota Gunmetal color.
Also swapped out the stock radio with the premium HU and wrapped the radio trim.
Did the mat pieces too!







Fun with vinyl.



Lots of mods planned!

I had so much fun with the rattle can so I added more color to the front badge.


And something I had done about 3 months ago...
I hate the inadequate trunk lighting on our xB's!
So I took the instructions from boblamb's DIY for accessory outlets and added some extra light to the cargo area.

Wired with an LED switch, I installed an Oznium 6 LED module in the passenger side lower cubby area...
just gotta configure a nice way to mount it.




I plan on diffusing the light by covering the cubby with a shoji screen I made...

I really liked the way the Boss amplified subwoofer looked in Hellen4Wheels' Murasaki so I bought one and installed it myself last month.
It sounds awesome and I can't wait to compliment it with upgraded speakers.
It's already stealth by it's underseat location but I decided I wanted to conceal it even more.

Now you see it


Now you don't

They're the Oznium vent lights. I'm getting more efficient with the install on this product since I'm on my third set (previous quality issues). I'm able to pop them in from the engine bay without removing the bumper or the fender liner thanks to my skinny arms. The hardest part is snapping them into the clips in the vent slot. I don't have a lot of power in my hands but I found that lubing the area with dishsoap helped a lot. (got that tip from a forum member here)

I did some lighting upgrades this weekend.

I swapped out the stock turn signal bulbs for LED switchbacks They match the vent lights and the HID headlights with a bright white but will switch to amber when I use the turn signal.



I also installed LED pudle lights under the side skirts. These guys light up when I open the door, and also when I press the lock/unlock on the remote. Matches the red LED's inside the car.







And for even more girlie accents...I made a removable picture frame to disguise my double din SNS100. I don't want to tempt thieves so I'm trying to hide my stereo. I can change the picture whenever I get tired of it.

Now you see it


now you don't


I put tabs on the frame so I could slip it into the slight gap between the head unit and the stereo surround.
This particular pic is hand-painted and meant to look like sumi-e style.
